The gap between beliefs

There is blue sky above

And there is the dirt at our feet

You wouldn’t think it would ever be confused

But it so very often is

There is truth

And the truth that we tell ourselves is true

Belief makes things difficult to decipher

The one from the other

A jet pilot flying at the speed of light

Loses sight

Of what is up

And what is down



Was it the speed

The warped perspective

Or the belief

The brought him low

I guess no one knows

And the dead tell no stories

In the end

There is the truth

And that which we tell ourselves is true

The gap between theories

So slim

It might only be a sideways glance

But it changes everything

      • You are welcome!! We are back into national lockdown here 🙁 I live in the sticks and my Department has one of the lowest case numbers in France but into national lockdown we have gone!

      • I was chatting to a friend in Scotland yesterday and they are locked down too – so grateful to be in Australia and on an island at present – we have no community transmitted cases at all and Melbourne is finally open for business. What a dreadful year that we didn’t see coming!

      • Yes, it has been the oddest of years and the pessimists say that we are looking at Easter before any sign of normalcy 🙁 To make matters worse, folks with second homes here have decided to descend upon Brittany for the month gahhh. Stay Safe!
